Nice on July 14: What Happened After the Attack

On July 14, a Tunisian Muslim terrorist drove a truck through a large crowd of people celebrating France's national day. Eighty five people were killed including children. And now we hear that those who responded to help the victims had to fight off others, who took advantage of the situation to try and loot the belongings of the victims as they lay on the street. Gates of Vienna has the sickening report, which is translated from the original French in Francois DeSouche (blog).

It is difficult to put into words the outrage I feel at reading this. Looting is a despicable crime that we usually see in the wake of natural disasters like earthquakes or floods when people have to flee their homes. Here we have 85 people who were dead or dying on the street from a terrorist attack, many others injured, and instead of rendering assistance some people chose to descend on the victims like vultures. There is a special place in Hell for people like that.
